We are...

...EU officials united in our dedication to making Europe's citizens healthier, safer and more confident.
Our job is to ensure food and consumer goods sold in the EU are safe, that the EU's internal market works for the benefit of consumers and that Europe helps protect and improve its citizens' health. Our activities touch the everyday lives of European citizens. We know they expect high standards, so we need to get it right. In order to succeed in our mission we work with other EU Institutions, national governments and agencies, consumer organisations, health interest groups, business groups, scientists, researchers and experts.
